The Aboriginal Population in NSW in 2015: Policy options and challenges

24-October-2015

NSW has the largest and arguably one of the most diverse Aboriginal populations of any jurisdiction in Australia. The Aboriginal population of NSW lives in areas ranging from remote townships with majority Aboriginal populations, to global cities like Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong alongside a diverse array of migrant population groups. In between these extremes, there are a large number of regional towns and cities with significant Aboriginal populations.

The research project provides the results of a scan of the trends in NSW, and where relevant broader demographic, economic and social environments to identify emerging issues relevant to the work of Aboriginal Affairs in NSW.

Information is provided on the 19 areas of policy identified as relevant, spanning demography; the economy; education; health and wellbeing; heritage; and justice and protection. With reference to the relevant literature and the data, areas for policy consideration are highlighted.
